We ALMOST got to ride on this plane. But not quite.
We woke up at 4:45 so we could get to the airport in time for our flight. As we went to check in, we discovered that our flight had been CANCELED due to weather. Seriously, the weather is FINE. Stupid American Airlines. So we spent the morning in the airport trying to get confirmed on another flight, since it's not easy to put 8 people on standby--not to mention the fact that there were already more than 60 people on standby for the next flight leaving at 9:30am. I guess a lot of people trying to get to Orlando had their flights canceled.
SO, after my parents spent the entire morning on the phone, we ended up renting two cars, and we're now in the process of driving straight through to Orlando. Yeah. DRIVING. It's going to take about 19 hours, but at least we'll get there earlier than American can get us there! The earliest flight they could confirm us on doesn't leave until FRIDAY. That's in 2 days! Crazy. Driving games, here we come!
